I travelled to Van Wert with family and we had booked two rooms at the Fountain Inn based on the great reviews but when we arrived we were left wondering what motel people were actually reviewing. We booked two rooms and each was supposed to have two king beds but when we arrived we were told that no such room...

Price seemed right given many of the reviews, but room 4 just didn’t measure up. Small and cramped, what was billed as a king bed was more like a queen with worn out double bed sheets and blanket. The bed didn't even match the size of the headboard. The suite was achieved by cramming in a stove and refrigerator. The...

Our stay at the Fountain Inn was wonderful: memorable, comfortable, and hospitable. (Not to mention very affordable!) The warm-hearted welcome that we had from the host/owner even included a cup of ginger tea, as we discussed the town, our children, and Ayurvedic medicine. The Y across the street had a good weight room to throw heavy metal around, but also...

I was very very surprised about the Fountain Inn. Great customer service, I was greeted like family, I was asked if I had a safe trip, and if I needed anything extra for me to get a good night sleep. The room was very clean, clean towels, clean sheets. The staff checked on me, about 11am. She was greatly concerned...

I travel throughout many states in my line of work as a truck driver and when this reservation was booked for me I was hoping for a good place to stay. Several issues with this hotel. First of all when I arrived the "office" door was locked. Check in was not by computer (hand written receipt.) Second the room I...

We stayed here for one night while we were driving along the 127 route for the World's Longest Yard Sale. It is a nice little mom & pop type place. Our room was small but clean and comfortable. They lady in the office was very nice and helpful. There are only maybe 22 rooms in the entire motel and we...

Walked in and it smelled old and musty. The light switch has electrical tape on it. They added a old stove and sink to a small room and called it a suite, looks prefect for a construction worker wanting ultra cheap hotel. Old blurry tube TV.

Unbelievably welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. Went out of their way to assure comfort and quiet. Room was clean and quaint with everything a guest might need. Excellent value for the price. Book it!
